Keep your private information private with East-Tec Eraser 2012

You know, eBay and Craig’s List are wonderful things. You can find all kinds of bargains there, and can usually sell things you either want or need to get rid of rather quickly. There great around the Holiday’s for quick cash and gift purchases; and computers are usually high traffic items that trade hands quickly.  The bad thing about used computers though is that hard drives can often retain data, even if you’ve already erased it. This is why I like tools like East-Tec Eraser.  It’s a hard drive security tool for Windows.

Getting rid of data on your hard drive isn’t always easy, but with East-Tec Eraser you can completely destroy information stored without your knowledge or approval, like your Internet history, web pages and pictures from sites you visited on the Internet, any unwanted cookies, and your chatroom conversations.  You can even get rid of deleted e-mail messages and attachments, temporary files, the Windows swap file, and the contents of your Recycle Bin, etc.

If you have (or had) sensitive information on your computer, and want or need to get rid of it and the tracks it leaves behind, don’t worry. East-Tec Eraser 2012 meets and exceeds government and industry standards for the permanent erasure of digital information, as well as Russian and German security standards; and industry standards like the Bruce Schneier Algorithm or the Peter Gutmann Method.

Smart Defrag the easiest way to defrag

Keep your hard drive running at peak performance with this handy piece of must have freeware. Any PC user will tell you, after a while – after installing applications and creating data files – at some point, your PC will need to be defragmented.  PC’s tend to place data anywhere it can see space. This is fine when your drive is relatively empty. Things get complicated as it fills up with data.

If your PC’s performance is bad – if it’s slow – the first thing I always check is the defrag level. If the drive is highly fragmented, the PC’s performance is going to be bad. Smart Defrag helps improve your PC’s performance by efficiently defragmenting and optimizing your hard drive. With its “Install it and forget it” feature, Smart Defrag works quietly in the background, keeping your hard disk running at its best. Performance issues and crashes will become a thing of the past.

This application is one of the very few where no cons could be easily identified. It’s free, small, fast and good at what it does. If you’re a Windows user, and are looking for a tool to defrag your hard drive with, this is a must have. It’s better than the tool that comes with Windows and is easy to use, and above all, it’s free.

O&O SpeedCheck

Defragmentation is a necessary operation for any stable system. But its result may vary from system to system depending on each configuration. You can get a long process duration and it may not be distinguishable. So instead of doing it anyway and losing time, you may want to check if your system really needs such an operation and what are the results in case you may want to apply such an operation.

O&O SpeedCheck is a free portable utility that simulates the effects of a defragmentation on your computer. It will simulate a fragmented and defragmented state on your system. This means that the program will simulate reading files that are fragmented and then re-reads them as they were defragmented. No data is written in the simulation and no real files are used for reading.

Files are read continuously one after the other on a hard disk level from the start of partition C:. The whole process takes around 8-10 minutes depending on your harddrive capacity. At the end of the simulation you will be shown a comparison of the two test times, and the possible increase in speed available to you. In this way you will get the picture how your PC can gain speed if you will defrag your system.

Both test runs are carried out five times, in order to eliminate any side effects caused by the applications that run in the background. Anyway, you should still close all the applications that run in background in order to get a precise result. File operations in particular can lead to a distortion of the result.

O&O SpeedCheck is a simple and useful tool that might save you time in understanding the need of your system for defragmentation. But it also promotes O&O Defrag by pointing you to its download site after finishing the simulation. Good thing is that you don’t have to choose this program. Just ignore the message and carry on with your work.
